I belong to a couple of spinning clubs and before a larger option was available, 4 ounces was all you’d get of any fiber. Sometimes I have been shopping at a fair and 4 ounces of a handpainted top was all that was available but I had to have it anyway.

So here I am sitting with 4 ounces of yarn spun up in all these random single colorways. I wanted a sweater and not a bunch of little projects. I thought, I’m a color person, I can put this all together and it will be fabulous. I was so pleased with the sweater that I had to make another in handpainted yarn and I still plan to make another in solid commercial yarn.

It’s easy enough for a relative beginner to do but the color shifts are enough to keep a veteran knitter occupied. Should you not want to do the color shifts, this sweater is just a nice simple basic top down that will work well for that.
